6 months, 10 days and counting - no grant yet, very stressful! I know that the "processing time is 10-14 months" but it's so disheartening seeing so many people approved within approximately 5 months (and some sooner, I've noticed!) only to have to wait in limbo even longer.

Was there any issues with your application? Perhaps not that straightforward which has taken extra time?

We've been together 6 years and our relationship is registered here in Queensland. There should be no issues that I can think of - our only thought is that maybe due to my partner'a background in the British Army they have had to do additional checks.. really we have no idea.

Strange that - assuming when you first had CO contact all they wanted was the medical and no additional statements etc?

Perhaps call them in London and ask.

I'm sure you will be next! They will start issuing grants again soon for this month and I bet you'll be approved then. Let us know once you hear. We are going to go ahead and book our medical this week (been waiting 5 months to hear and still waiting!!)

Hi There

I'm an Aussie - we live in the UK and we have applied for my Husband's Partner Visa for us to move to Australia. We have a holiday planned this year - Is it still okay to just apply for the E-Visitor Visa online as we have done for trips to Aus in the past, or is there a different visa required due to being mid application?

Many thanks!

E-Visitor is fine if you are just visiting and staying less than 3 months. I'm here on the E-Visitor, too.

Just let IMMI know that you are in AUS in case they are ready to grant the Partner Visa. They can't do that while your husband is onshore.

Excellent! Thank you! That is what I assumed - and then thought I had best check!
